Danny Robertson on Choke Hold.


This has really cool climbing out a huge, horizontal roof. Start on a detached block at the back of the cave, get a heel-toe cam, lean WAAY back and reach NO HANDED to jug slopers. Climb out the roof passing an awesome pinch. Climb into the top out of We Squeezes. Long-ish!


This is about 15' right of We Squeezes, sharing the same descent.

Apparently, several kneebars exist, lowering the grade.

Rad problem to do without the knee pads and bars. Super cool moves clocking in at V10 without the rubber knee bar trickery.
